tasty tuesday - Whoopie Pies - an easy recipe.

i have seen a lot of recipes for these guys but they are REALLY complicated and call for ingredients that i don't keep on hand. these ones are pretty darn tasty and a lot easier than most of the recipes i see for them.

this is not a picture of my whoopie pies (thank you google images) but i haven't made them for a few months and didn't regularly take pictures of my food prior to stepping up to the plate and maintaining my blog. next time i make them i will take some pictures for an update post.

what you'll need...

Cookie Dough:2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
1 cup(s) sugar
3/4 cup(s) milk
1/2 cup(s) unsweetened cocoa
6 tablespoon(s) butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon(s) baking soda
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
1 large egg

Marshmallow Creme Filling:

6 tablespoon(s) butter or margarine, slightly softened
1 cup(s) confectioners' sugar
1 jar(s) (7- to 7 1/2-ounce) marshmallow creme
1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 2 large cookie sheets.

2.Prepare Cookie Dough: In large bowl, with spoon, mix all dough ingredients until smooth.

3.Drop dough by heaping tablespoons, 2 inches apart, on each prepared cookie sheet. (There will be 12 rounds per sheet.)

4.Bake 12 to 14 minutes, rotating sheets between upper and lower racks halfway through baking, until puffy and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. With wide spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

5.Prepare Marshmallow Creme Filling: In large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter until smooth. Reduce speed to low; gradually beat in confectioners' sugar. Beat in marshmallow creme and vanilla until smooth.

6.Spread 1 rounded tablespoon filling on flat side of 12 cookies. Top with remaining cookies.
